Its nice to see signs of a culture of guys playing their way onto the team rather than showing up assuming they have a spot - hope that work ethic only grows from here.
My only real criticism of Rome's play was his completely inability to get a good shot off from the point. I often screamed at my TV when forwards passed the puck back to Rome at the blueline to fire a shot at the net, only for it to dribble feebly into the high slot and get picked off. He does a lot of things OK, but shooting the puck is not one of them.
